Fortress Skips Dividend For Eighth-Straight Quarter

Jun 24 2010 | 7:16am ET

If something doesn’t change for two whole years, is it still news?

News or not, Fortress Investment Group said it won’t pay a second-quarter dividend. The alternative investments giant has not paid a dividend to investors since the second quarter of 2008.

As with the previous seven quarters, Fortress said it would hold onto the capital that would have otherwise paid the dividend “for potential future investment opportunities and for working capital purposes.”

New York-based Fortress, which manages about $32 billion, posted a first-quarter loss, but saw the performance of its funds and its fee income rise sharply.
